  1. Latest maps available for 2013

    Car Audio/Alarms/UConnect/Navigation
    There is a Garmin module inside our radios that can be updated indefinitely if you buy the right model external Garmin and "borrow" it's maps. There is a thread around here somewhere that explains how to do it, and what model that is.
  2. iPhones, iOS fun

    Car Audio/Alarms/UConnect/Navigation
    And even more handy is the SDHC reader in the dash. And your USB jack is still available.
  3. iPhones, iOS fun

    Car Audio/Alarms/UConnect/Navigation
    I used an old iPod to play music via USB. No issues with that old thing. I suspect Apple drifted away from the specs they used in the old iPhones, making our radios obsolete. I know as soon as I had Android with Kitkat or later, all messaging stopped working. :mad: :cry:
  4. Drivers door not unlocking

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    To answer your question in the OP, no I never had this happen on my 2012 w/142K miles. I don't like the sound of sparking something open. How about repeatedly pushing the lock and unlock buttons in close succession to see if that cleans up the contacts? And battery problems are an easy thing...
  5. Alpine dash 3.5" full range?

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    I have the base model so I don't have the external amp or sub you do. But I did download the wiring diagram for my car and the dash and door speakers are in parallel. That surprised me. The dash speakers were crap and I noticed a high-pass filter (a capacitor) mounted in series with the voice...
  6. Issue with shaking I feel in my body but not the brake or steering wheel.

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    Good grief. I haven't had that problem since I bought my first and last set of Big O tires. I should have known the "O" in their name stood for oval! So, which 3 brands exhibited this problem?
  7. Emergency brake

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    A "pawl". OK, got it. :D I hope there is some adjustment that will fix my parking brake.
  8. Emergency brake

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    Fortunately my hydraulic brakes have never failed. But if they had, I am unsure whether the emergency brake would work at all, because it's completely useless as a parking brake. I dutifully set the "parking brake" every time I park the car. Even on a slight incline, it will roll downhill...
  9. Upgraded to RB5, No NAV or APP button showing.

    Car Audio/Alarms/UConnect/Navigation
    The pins and wires from my retrofit camera go into unused sockets on one of the plugs that's already there. I'm afraid I didn't keep the installation instructions. Given that there are not that many models without a backup camera, you will probably get lucky with your RB5 and have it work.
  10. 2017 Chrysler 300 S Dash noises and rear end chirping!!!

    General Discussion
    I suspect the chirp is from the rear brakes. What noise is the driver's side dash making?
  11. Upgraded to RB5, No NAV or APP button showing.

    Car Audio/Alarms/UConnect/Navigation
    I cannot address the NAV problem, but I retrofitted my car with an OEM backup camera, and it did not work. My dealer claimed he had to add the camera to Chrysler's database for my car's configuration, and then reflash every module in the car to get the camera to be used by my new radio. That...
  12. Service Shifter Please help!

    General Discussion
    I can't imagine that the drive shaft would be a problem. Is this the 8 speed? You can pull off the top with the button and then the T part comes off with a #10 torx IIRC. This is bizarre. I recommend the dealer.
  13. back up camera for a 2011 Chysler 300

    General Discussion
    You will have to take off the liner to the trunk lid to get at it. When you do that, check the connector and see if it's dislodged. If not, then I don't know what else to try other than replacing the camera.
  14. ignition coil $450 replacement

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    Well, this is not good. I was driving down I66 at freeway speed and my transmission suddenly went into neutral and I stared coasting to a stop. I believe that happened because my engine quit running. Not sure about that because of the excitement at the time. But when I was stopped on the...
  15. 2015 300s Dashboard went out while driving

    General Discussion
    Did you by any chance drive into and out of a shadow? I have my dash lights set low for the case when the lights come on automatically, and full brightness for when the sun is out.
  16. ignition coil $450 replacement

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    You can edit your posts you know. ;) Genuine Chrysler part is about $30 at RockAuto.com and elsewhere too.
  17. ignition coil $450 replacement

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    Argh! That is what I thought. It's the V6 Pentastar. I think the labor must be for 2 hrs. :( The service adviser (such as he was) claimed that there was one coil per cylinder. Then he asked whether my car was 6 or 4 cylinders. :eek:
  18. HVAC issue

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    I had the dealer repair my 2012 temperature control on 3 occasions. The symptoms were on cold days to roast me alive, or freeze me to death. Nothing in between! The first time they replaced the sun sensor/multiswitch. I couldn't believe that could be the problem but it was. The next time...
  19. ignition coil $450 replacement

    2nd Generation Chrysler 300 Discussion
    The ignition coil on my #2 cylinder developed an intermittent problem causing the car to buck pretty badly, even when idling (but in gear). The dealer replaced the part ($83) and charged me $299 labor! :mad: Are the ignition coils on our cars in a ridiculous location?
  20. Audio upgrade Questions

    Car Audio/Alarms/UConnect/Navigation
    The dash speaker replacement is too easy not to try that first. I have the Infinity Reference speakers and I do not find them "too bright" at all. But they are much more sensitive (put out more volume than the factory speakers) so I turn down the volume and up the bass instead. I still have...
